Survey Says – NRA More Popular Than Anti-Gun NEA
FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- According to a recent survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports and reported on Newsmax.com, the National Rifle Association is significantly more popular than the nation’s largest teachers union, the National Education Association.
The national survey, conducted on June 30—July 1, 2011, found that 54 percent of voters view NRA favorably, with 29 percent indicating a very favorable opinion.
Conversely, the survey found that only 42 percent of likely voters held at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the NEA, with just 17 percent viewing them as very favorable.
The findings are not surprising, given that numerous polls over the years have shown that the American public generally supports NRA and opposes more gun control.
The anti-gun NEA has already endorsed President Obama’s 2012 re-election.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military. Visit: www.nra.org
